Tuesday - and Im Stressing Out!

I can barely believe its the end of Tuesday again, where is this week going already? The week has gone from bad to worse, wont bore you with details, but just when you think nothing else can go wrong , life throws bit of rubbish at you. I thought 2010 would be a better year for us, but it looks like it might not be the case. I have to admit im feeling very tired with all these obstacles and problems over the last 18 months, maybe some nice warm weather will cheer me up.

Now i dont want to make you all feel miserable. I didn't come on here to moan, i came to show you two more of the cards i made the other week.

Firstly this gorjuss girl card using some of the Papermania papers given to me as a present. Also using my favourite Martha Stewart deep punch. Simple lines and the blue makes me feel fresh.

Secondly another card using the gorgeous DCWV La Creme papers and the Glitter Girls sentiment stamp from before. However this time using one of the gorgeous Lili of the Valley fairy stamps, which i totally adore.

Used an embossing folder to emboss the round sentiment matt and coloured with my pro markers to blend with the image.

The stars have been coloured again with pro markers and then stickled.

I have to admit i am loving the colours of the La Creme stack. Well thats it from me for today back later in the week with some more makes i hope.
Big hugs Linda x

Hi Linda,
So sorry to hear about your problems. I know how you must feel, I'm still recovering from a very stressful 2009.
Your cards are both so beautiful. I love that border punch and am very tempted to add that to my collection lol.
Hope your luck turns around soon, sending you a big hug.

Hi Linda, know how you're feeling but try to take in your stride. Love both the cards. The image is dead cute on the first card, like the blues and the way you've incorporated the MS punch. The second is also great with the different coffee colours and especially the embossing of the focal point. Superb! Liz xx
